The Marketing Working Group has been tackling the issue of updating the Open edX Marketplace. This is a significant point of engagement for prospective customers and people/organizations interested in the Open edX platform and Open edX Providers. We want to start by updating the categories used on these pages.
We currently have the following categories:
- Open edX Service Providers
- Technology Providers
- Other Providers
These categories might be confusing to prospective customers and may not fully capture the nature of providers’ services. How would you recommend we change them?
The following ideas have been discussed:
- Segment by services provided (e.g. Installation and Development, Hosting, Content Development, etc.)
- Shift away from provider-focused terminology and focus more on customer-interests
- Utilize the filters or a lead questionnaire to eliminate these categories entirely
How would you recommend adjusting these categories and updating this page?
